i just realized this might be a problem and had to register and ask! would running android render the touchstone useless? I've been contemplating buying one, if android does kill it then I'll be able to save some monayy


I don't see how it would. The Touchstone works off Magnets, and is hardware based. There are also threads about making other devices use Touchstone, by modding the hardware.

After taking a look at the build.prop of this dump, it appears that this android build is meant for a device that has both HDMI output and GPS. I wish the Touchpad had that. Obviously, these pieces will be removed from our build to eliminate clutter.

Looking further into this build, i notice that a preliminary build is going to be a bare bones system, meaning that it will run Android.... and thats it. Drivers are going to be needed that are not part of this default build. It will struggle with basic functions such as getting wifi activated and possibly sound. I think that a good bit of patience will be required before we start dumping this on everyone's devices.

This build should have all the correct drivers installed.....in the video we saw Jiwanish surf the web through wifi and also had bluetooth on. Sound and Camera ran perfectly based on singhaldallas's video on youtube . Not sure how you came to that conclusion, maybe i need to learn a bit too..i am still a noob at this.

The youtube videos show that wifi already works and furthermore since this is a Qualcomm dev build and it's their SOC running the touchpad, I'd imagine it has all the drivers.

Guys, not to alarm you but this will more than likely take at least a couple months for an alpha version then another couple for a RC. I know it's exciting but we are building from the ground up here. Getting this hardware to work with Android will be tough but not impossible. It will take longer because there are no current Android tablets running the same hardware configurations, these guys probably had to choose the device that had the MOST similarities and then work with that. That being said, many many things will not work or work well when the initial alpha is released. Also, were going to need Honeycomb source if were going to get that working, but that's like 6 months+ down the road I'm guessing. My times could be off a bit but the issues are the same. Have patience and be grateful, help if you can, if you want. I will. If there is one good thing that comes out of this I would say it is that because this device is WiFi only then a lot of the work normally associated with doing this will be removed because these guys won't have to work on any kind of radio hardware. I just hope there are enough similarities between the chosen devices build and the Touchpad that this operation can go as swiftly and smoothly as possible.


Dude, it already runs android... It'll be much easier with this dump, I'd imagine they could have Gingerbread booting in a day.

With this dump they have a kernel and they have drivers which are arguably the hardest part of porting Android.

There is few devices based on same hardware :) Like sensation or evo 3d. HTC puccini should be almost the same to Touchpad.
